Nice pics but yet again another example of names faded, almost beyond recognition.

THEIR NAME LIVETH FOREVERMORE - probably not.

This really type of thing really gets to me,

Mark,
Sadly, even using my finger to try and guestimate, I couldn't make out some of the names.
Luckily for me, the chap I was researching was decipherable - Dugald Rankin.
Are the names inserted in lead as opposed to being inscribed?

Sorry, not used to the layout.

Glencoe is in Highland Region: look up Ballachulish in it for details.

This memorial in the village of Glencoe is requiring attention as the lettering is hard to read .
